Acclaimed for his lustrous tone and formidable technique, Javier Oviedo has traveled across the United States and to three continents, bringing the significant but underplayed classical saxophone repertoire to new and appreciative audiences. His engagements with orchestras such as the New Jersey Symphony, the Louisiana Philharmonic, and Orchestre Pasdeloup were great crowd-pleasers and have garnered invitations to perform around the world. He has a special affinity for France and its history with the saxophone. His musicological detective work has unearthed some forgotten gems of music for solo saxophone and orchestra. His impassioned performances of this repertoire have led to his highly successful orchestral debut in Paris, and to a recording with Orchestre Pasdeloup entitled The Classical Saxophone: A French Love Story. As both a soloist and a chamber musician, Javier Oviedo has performed in many of New York's most prestigious locations, such as the Dag Hammarskjöld Auditorium at the United Nations, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
